Blue Sky Therapy


離正式搬家的日子真的不遠了,WHAT A RELIEF! 可是人生就是這麼的諷刺,當我們越接近入伙的日子,平时被忽略的窗外风景显得特別的美,特別的藍。Now I'm super reluctant to leave this place! 以後的家望過去對面,看到的會是隱隱約約的人影,或者是鄰居在陽台各種活動。


只能安慰自己說,以後將會有這個不錯的夕陽美景為每一天完美的落幕。每天晚上睡眠時間不會再聽到各式各樣的車子在高速公路上飆車的噪音。(上個禮拜深夜4點發生的3死7傷大車禍,那幾聲巨響讓我到現在還心有餘悸。我擔心很久的事情竟然在我搬家前發生了😰)

热 • 浪岛


闊別7年重遊熱浪島,有种既熟悉又陌生的感觉,走過的每一個腳步彷彿聽到笑声連連的回憶點滴。記得20歲出頭的那幾年,熱浪島成了年度旅行的必去之地。以前還可以在這沙灘給來回走幾圈,但現在體魄確實不如從前,身上也多了個一包米重の娃,加上太陽先生不是普通的猛烈,在下真的有心無力。

Thank You White Knight

Fisheye always reminds me a lot of all the fun times I had when I was in my early 20s. Sing K, club scenes, food hunting, beach trips etc... Here's some last few shots from fisheye camera who has served me well for the last 10 years! The film was actually long abandoned in my camera before I realised it years later. Sadly the advance wheel was kind of stuck, I couldn't roll to next frame for another shot multiple times before it went totally dead.

The whole film resulted in only 6 shots in total, including 2 underexposed shots. 😭


Poolside at our new place. The sunset from where I stood was really stunning the other day.


Went Genting for a night just to spend some quality time with this one.

Film photos are always surprising aren't they? I was lucky to find a brand new Lomo fisheye selling less than half of the retail price few months ago on Carousel! 😍 Guess I will just keep this spoiled one to display at our new home!

Travelling with a belly

Singapore

Last year seems to be all about wedding and pregnancy, gives me shivers just to think of these keywords(!). I regretted not taking more photos during with my belly though, as I spent most times of the last pregnancy being worried about what kind of unfortunate events could possibly happen. 😑 Thank God for these not-so-meaningless photos that almost left forgotten, a good reminder that my 2017 wasn't so terrible because I actually travelled to few places, it's not that bad afterall.

One Fine Day

Baby Boss
She'll always be fine with snacks.

Baby Boss
..or Pinkfong videos!

It's hard to me to have my camera with me now when I have a diaper bag and a baby to carry most of the time. Last week I went out for quick lunch nearby where I can also do my grocery next door. Never thought it would be a nice place to take photos because the surrounding was all full length glass windows that brings in ample natural light. I truly enjoy this moment, with camera in hand and no one else to disturb. P/S: I actually play videos for baby so she could leave me in peace while I'm trying to work on the camera settings LOL judge me however you want ok? 😆

I guess she's not fond of the veggies section.

Happy 61st Independence Day, Malaysia!

National Day #malaysiabaru

Obviously it would be difficult for us to go all the way to Putrajaya for the national day parade(sources suggested we should reach before 7AM to avoid massive traffic!) so I made us another plan—which is to dress up for photos at Dataran Merdeka instead. KL has always been a favourite for street photography. And boy I can't believe how much it has changed, I used to be around here so often. It's so tourist-friendly(even for the locals) now with road signs everywhere that it's possible to explore KL city just by walking. We took advantage of the LRT right beside our condo and traveled to Masjid Jamek where our short KL street tour began.

Exploring Canggu

Poolside

峇里島真的是個充滿驚喜的地方。這一次朋友安排住在CANGGU區。雖然比上次的NONA'S BALI來得方便,可是住宿和設備都比上次的VILLA遜色很多。(突然好懷念當時候自家廚師住的炒麵和煎蛋,園丁在大家喝茶時段剪草澆花,打掃的則忙著打掃房間⋯⋯ 我就整個少奶奶邊喝茶邊監督地舒服臉 😂 哇那畫面~)

這一次帶了兩部相機和一顆鏡頭,最後還是敗給貪方便的心態和不想(寶寶的)背包那麼重而放棄了比較重的PEN-F和鏡頭,只帶了COMPACT型的MJU-II,沒想到漏光程度這麼的放肆!😏 這也是我第一次用FUJICOLOR C200,個人是覺得這底片色調太適合拍SUMMER HOLIDAY了!

June Update

I spent one productive month in my hometown after election day(hooray to the new Malaysia!). Daily routines are about the same, it's always started with lunch outside and come home trying to make baby take her naps. At least I've got lots of helping hands(thanks mum, sis and in-laws!) with the baby while I can do things such as meeting with friends over a cuppa or simply just enjoy my shower.

I came back to KL realising baby has outgrown many of her rompers. D: How did she grow bigger overnight? I can't believe she has passed the 6 month-old mark! She's going to be 7 in 2 weeks time. Baby's bottom front teeth has also made its debut last month, it's so heart-wrenching to see her in pain that comes with slight fever. Oh time please slow down, I miss my toothless baby, we both do!

Toothless Smile

Gotta settle new house stuff first before I could go home and enjoy my break again. Can't wait to move in already cos baby stuff is slowly piling up, I barely have space for my own. Ahhh I think I should really blog more regularly T_T I expect this post to be a lot longer than it is now but I forget most of it grrrrr.

Anyeong Busan!

This day last year, we set our feet in the land of Kimchi, with a heavy heart following the passing of Joe's beloved grandma, just few days before the trip. Well, it sure felt surreal, as I never thought I would visit Korea so soon and it was never in my list. It's very important to do your own research beforehand because everywhere in Korea is accessible via public transport at your convenience. All you need is to know where do you really want to visit or give it a go; otherwise it's very, very straight-forward, you can easily google the directions.

However, I must admit when I first look at the subway map, I got really frustrated and stressed out. First of all, I was never into Korea. Secondly, I have zero idea about Korean artists other than Song Joong Ki & the Running Man crews. I'm also not a fan of K-beauty. So Korea is really something new and strange to me. You can rest assured that as you do research, you will slowly figure everything out and see the map in a much clearer view.

3 months

Changing time!

Raising kid indicates new challenges everyday, there's always something new and different. But what a privilege it is to watch your own child grow each day. There are days I feel extremely terrible when baby is being extra cranky but deep down inside, I'm enjoying every single moment. Truth be told, in the near future I probably won't remember the bad days or how the day felt so long when Joe is taking forever to come home from work. I also won't remember how many inches she grow or how much weight she gained each day.. I will only remember how she responded with a big smile the each time I make funny faces and how she melts me in every little thing she does whilst amazed by my ability to make such cute baby, I'm sure it crossed every mother's mind right?

Look at her! She's definitely growing up to be a daddy's girl.

Alyssa is 3 months old as of today, it also marks the 3rd month of me being a SAHM! It all seems to have happened so quickly and I still can't get used to having someone to call "my daughter". I can't wait for her to grow up and have more interactions with us; at the same time I wish the time could stop so she will always stay little in my arms.
